BLACK VEIL BRIDES


Coffin Lyrics

Take your crosses,
I'll live without them,
Standing wet in holy
rain.
When you were
baptized,
Ignored the problem,
That's when I watched
you seal your grave.

I tried to save you,
But let you drink the
pain,
A final song now we
both know.
So I'm not givin' up,
Won't let you suffocate
me,
You find your hell is
home.

I don't owe you
anything,
You'll only die a dream
forgotten,
I've got my pride so
hear me sing,
I'll never let you steal
my coffin.

Words as weapons,
pierce into you,
So self-righteous, have
it your way,
I'm alive and now I'm
burning,
Say a prayer to end
today.
I tried to save you,
But let you drink the pain,
A final song now we
both know.
So I'm not givin' up,
Won't let you suffocate
me,
You find your hell is
home.

I don't owe you
anything,
You'll only die a dream,
forgotten,
I've got my pride so
hear me sing,
I'll never let you steal
my coffin.

*Instrumental*

NEVER LET YOU STEAL
MY AFTERLIFE.
NEVER LET YOU STEAL
MY AFTER LIFE!

So I'm not givin' up,
Won't let you suffocate
me,
You find your hell is
home.

I don't owe you
anything,
You'll only die a dream,
forgotten,
I've got my pride so
hear me sing,
I'll never let you steal
my coffin.

I don't owe you
anything,
You'll only die a dream,
forgotten,
I've got my pride so
hear me sing,
I'll never let you steal
my coffin.

I think that Andy Biersack is talking about how Andy Six is dead and not coming back. I feel like he is saying that we should get used to Andy biersack because he isn't going anywhere. Also if you noticed in the knives and pens video, he has a song journal. In the Coffin video, he burns the notebook. Also the person in the coffin has more makeup on and different clothes, thus symbolizing that Andy Six is dead

I think that its saying goodbye to Andy six not anything else it's talking about how Andy isn't Andy six anymore and he's Andy Bierscak

Am i the only one that thinks this song is angry at the fanbase? I mean, despite our love for them our behaviour hasn't exactly done them any justice... they owe us nothing and we shouldnt act like it
